Historic Armory Site - Now and Then

About

Artist:  Jerome Meadows
Material:  Concrete, ceramic tiles, and architectural fragments of the Silver Spring Armory
The monument to the Silver Spring Armory site was created by an artist whose heritage includes both African American and Native-American (Cherokee) ancestry.  Jerome Meadow's diverse background led him to express a community's spirit through his collage and abstract work.  As a former resident of DC and graduate student at the University of Maryland, Meadows is familiar with Silver Spring's cultural mix.  Meadows says "Art, the way I interpret it, lies within the realm (of the spirit) and when used effectively can have a healing impact, a revealing impact, an empowering impact."
